Building work stops trains

At a block managed by HNF Property in North London, significant structural works on a block immediately adjacent to the railway line will necessitate the removal of shrubs and the erection of scaffolding in such close proximity to a railway line that it will be necessary for work to be undertaken by specialist approved contractors in hours when the line itself and the supplies thereto can be shut down.

crackThis has added a significant complication to the job and necessitated meetings with Network Rail, detailed liaison, designs of scaffolding and work procedures to be produced ultimately leading to them providing us with certain slots during which work can be undertaken.

To minimise disruption to the railway line, schedules, network etc, work will be undertaken at 3 o’clock on Sunday night/Monday morning an example of the sort of unexpected issues that can arise during a block maintenance programme.
